artist/friend

that photo up there in the header was taken by a very dear friend of mine while shooting a film together.
his film.
in the desert. in summer.
it was hot and messy and quite possibly the most amazing experience i've ever had while acting.
ben is one of those people that forced your hand to be the best you possible. to believe in yourself. to set your own limits. to widen your own boundaries.
he dares you to open your mind to something new.
he'll even help you move at eight o clock in the morning with a smile on his face.

we met years ago and i'm so honored to call him a friend. his girlfriend, danielle, is one of my most favorite people in the world. don't be jealous. you, too, can get to know ben a little bit better. you've seen him here before, but now...
he has a new website.
go check out his director's reel.
(i was super excited and humbled to see that i was featured in it. clips taken from the film 'now'.)
i wrote his bio for him and every word is true. every. single. word.

he's an artist, that one.

  6. I checked out your friend's director's reel, and much to my surprise I saw my good friend, Sacha Sacket, in much of the reel! (hmmmm, how many commas can I fit into one sentence? ha!)
    Small world!

    Anyway, you look gorgeous! And, Ben's reel is very cool!

  10. I am fascinated. I did not know you were an actresss. It's funny how multi-dimensional all of our lives are. You have a whole other thing I never knew about. Of course you do, lots of other "things", but still... It just makes me think. What else about me do people not know. Hmmmmmm....


    So? How do I watch Now? I just checked Netflix with no luck. The only link above I haven't visited yet is the director's reel. I'm off to do that now. I'd love to hear more stories, if you care to share.
